How does a group of friends go from getting together for milk tea into aspiring to become an idol group? Let ZEROTOHERO show you how!
The idea of coming from nothing and becoming something is what everyone hopes for. It’s with that dream that Zero 2 Hero, stylized as ZEROTOHERO, aims to become groundbreakers in the Philippine pop industry.
ZEROTOHERO comprises of eight young men who started out as K-pop fans. From loving the music to embracing the culture, Yukito, Kale, Jae, Zeno, Sky, Kenny, Rei, and Hyohwa started dreaming for more. The group started out as dance cover artists, performing songs by B2ST (now Highlight), 24K, GOT7, and Stray Kids. It’s with a random get-together and a comment out of fun to move from being cover artists to becoming idols themselves that truly got the ball rolling.
Similar to K-Pop groups, ZEROTOHERO members are in charge of specific roles:
● Yukito – leader, main vocal
● Kale – vice-leader, lead dancer, lead vocal
● Jae – main dancer, lead singer
● Zeno – main dancer, sub vocal
● Sky – main vocal, lead dancer
● Kenny – lead dancer, sub vocal
● Rei – main dancer, rapper
● Hyohwa – lead dancer, sub vocal
These guys aren’t the first boyband in the Philippines, but ZEROTOHERO hopes to set themselves apart from the rest. Pulling influence from their K-pop roots, the group mixes Korean and Japanese flower boy aesthetics with the style and culture of the Philippines to create a concept that’s all ZEROTOHERO. The group wants to break the stereotypical image of being idols and hopes to become role models regardless of image or status. ZEROTOHERO is on the right track as several members do have day jobs while they wait for their debut.
Kenny is a licensed nurse, while Hyohwa and Kale are chefs by profession.
Other members also have acting experience playing minor roles for TV dramas.
ZEROTOHERO released their debut single ‘Wag Kang Mag-Alala‘ on April 1st this year. It is a song about offering one’s heart to another person who gives hope. They describe the single as more than just a love song but one that can be about friends and family as well. ZEROTOHEROwill also release a music video that promises to be a fun take on their everyday lives and their journey into becoming idols.
The single is available on Spotify, Apple Music and iTunes. The official music video for the single will be released on their official
